iPhone 5s and 5c arrive Friday: sold out in China, lines in USA and Japan

You might not know it, but the iPhone 5s has already gone on sale in China and subsequently sold out - every single size and color. This doesn't mean that places like Japan or the United States should worry, as there is separate stock for each different region, but it just goes to show: the lines at 5th Avenue in NYC and in the Ginza district in Japan may not be there without purpose. It's quite possible Apple will sell out of iPhones this time around.

iOS 7 Siri gets serious: out of Beta at last

As of the 18th of September, iOS 7 will be out in the wild, and with it the final (or first, however you like to see it) full version of Siri. Up until now Siri has been labeled with a "Beta" tag by Apple for all of the devices that've used it - iPhone 4S, iPad 3rd and 4th generations, iPhone 5 and all. Now with the launch of iOS 7, this "supercharged" version of Apple's virtual assistant Siri will be sent out to the masses.

iPhone 5c begins to sell out, 5s online orders announced

Today pre-orders began for Apple's iPhone 5c, the phone that's set to replace the iPhone 5 in the company's stock while the iPhone 5s takes the hero spot, and they've already begun to sell out pre-orders. Though it is only one model and one color for now, it would appear that this smartphone is set to be a winner despite controversy over its specifications being so similar to last year's model. Meanwhile the iPhone 5s has been announced to be hitting the Apple store online at midnight, starting the 20th of September off right with a launch at 12:01 AM PST.

iPhone 5 discontinued: where did they all go?

iPhone 5 discontinued: where did they all go?

Earlier this week Apple held an event in which they changed their model for releasing iPhones, replacing the until-recently standard hero device iPhone 5 instead of just bumping it down a notch in the pricing structure. In comes the iPhone 5s as the hero, and the iPhone 5c to take the second tier. But here's the kicker: even though Apple has discontinued the iPhone 5, there's certainly still a massive amount of unsold stock out there in the wild. So where did they all go?

iPhone 5S Apple M7 coprocessor “knows” when you are sleeping

More information on the Apple A7 processor and its M7 motion coprocessor has appeared this week along with a set of suggestions on what Apple is working on for the system next. This system exists right this minute inside the iPhone 5S, bringing with it a bit of "always-on" measuring of motion data. This data is taken from the iPhone's built-in set of sensors, the same set as delivered in iPhones for several generations past: accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass.
